kinda makes you stop and think

A woman on the train today looked up at me with a sincere look of concern on her face and asked me if I wanted to take her place and sit. I'm pretty sure she thought I was pregnant. Which I'm not. Hmm... time to start that diet.

Nope, Jen, I'm so not kidding. I suppose it doesn't help that I was wearing a bit of a maternity-esque dress, but still. Ugh.

Thanks, Karey! I'll try to keep telling myself that.

Oh sweetie! Well at least she didn't ask when your baby is due. That happened to a friend of mine.

On a brighter note, aahh! I can't believe you live in Chicago! I have only lived in California for 2 years, other than that I lived on (born and raised) the Northside! (Sheridan & Granville)

Hi Gigi! I'm pretty sure that if she asked when the baby was due, I would have started crying right there on the spot. Good thing she didn't go that far!

What a small world that you're originally a midwest-girl.. and Chicago at that! (I'm actually a transplant from Wisconsin but have lived here about 8 years now.)

Keep up the yummy baking over there in Sunny California! I check your blog all the time to see what great recipes you're coming up with.

This made me laugh - I think the popularity of empire waists has ruined some of us girls. Last year I was wearing a very cutesy summer dress in a particular fabric store when the lady working the front desk came over and asked if I wanted to see their new baby fabrics. What was I gonna say? I felt so bad, I didn't want to break her heart by telling her I've just gained a bit of weight so I just rolled with it. So sorry, but I've been there!

Oh Meander - I guess you're sitch was just as bad as mine. Let's both just forget about them, huh? ;)
